Shaw's Supermarket Chat Thread

This thread is being created for the OT chat that goes into the Shaw's Deals thread. We are a chatty bunch and have become an extended family. I heart the OT chat, but agree that sometimes we just want to read about the deals. So hopefully this thread will help decrease the OT in the deals thread and we all have a place to chat with each other.

Do you know the three bite rule ? If you REALLY want something Dr. Mike suggests the 3 bite rule...have three scrumptious (reasonable size) bites and then push it/give it/throw it away !!!! it works Stick Out Tongue

I was just watching something on TV and they were saying how Kim Kardasian always gets dessert but eats like 2 bites and then dumps her water on it so she cant take anymore bites. LOL I dont think I could do that LOL

LOL, I'm not sure water would ruin it enough for me...especially if it was cheesecake.

I try and split a small piece at work when we have cake. Its a monthly thing and we get the equivalent of three full sheet cakes. We finally convinced them to only use the whipped cream frosting though. Not the heavy shortening type. So I normally convince one or two of the other ladies to share a small piece with me. Then we can all have some and feel compelled to share instead of scarfing it down.

bounce I get the whole weekend off this week. DH has to do some spare embroidery between now and then but all we have to do is get an oil change and laundry. Hoping to continue working through sorting unpacked boxes while making cookies for work. Clear purple Sterilite totes are on clearance at WM (again) and I've got 18 unfilled ones left to finish sorting and organizing our stuff into. If any of you need totes, these come in four sizes and are a modular system. They are clear purple with a purple lid and grey/silver handles. They also come in opaque purple with same color lid and handles-full price and clear with a tan/gold lid and dark tan handles-also full price and has another size available. The newer shipments of clear are a more milky clear, the original ones were clearer looking to me, but I could be nuts. Clearance totes are $4-$9, originally $5.57-11.97. We've had our candy in them since before the move and I adore them. Very sturdy and they can hold the weight without bowing.

Thought I'd post something to bump this thread from the 3rd page.

Went to Hannaford today and realized the PSP of the blocky red peppers much like MB sells bagged is $1.69/lb (buy 3 peppers at a time) and they are sold right alongside the more expensive shinier ones at $2.49. Nice to see it since it's a longstanding weakness they've had. Also, the product I love them for (all natural turkey) is on sale at the deli ($5.99/lb).

Weather's getting pretty nasty here in southern ME. Saw one car off the road on the way to pick up the kids from school - and it's only a 5-min drive. Be careful out there!

Before I go digging through the RA threads...

I saw an endcap of the Nivea items with a Spend XX get $10 back listed for a long time...want to say starting last weekend ending the end of the month? Had the single tubes of lip stuff, the tuns and the squeeze tubes.

I bought 8 packaged tubes, and notice I have $12 towards the RA birthday thingy, but no Nivea tracking...

So I am wondering if the Nivea thingy isn't tracking, isn't working, or doesn't include the pegged lip stuff. Cause then I'll buy the unpegged ones, but I HAD to try the olive oil and lemon.

Peeved the lip butter isn't included. I PMed it at WM last night and its AMAZING. But they only have unflavored and cherry. RA has a caramel and a coconut.....nod

No sure Ang, I just got all of them early in the week, if I didn't get out early they'd be gone, like the poise I looked for of Thursday laugh out loud don't know what I was thinking. Didn't even know there was a $ back deal, oh well.

So I'm down to pre almost 1 year old weight. Almost 24lbs gone. Now to get down to pre 8 year old weight.... Then pre 13 year old weight..... LMAO LMAO last couple of weeks I've only lost .2lbs per week, but at least its still a loss!

As far as I know, the only deal the Nivea was part of was the 50th Anniversary UP. That was: Spend $100, get $20 UP; and for each of the next three $50 you spent, you'd get another UP for $10. So the max for the 50th Anniversary promotion was $50 in UPs if you spent a total of $250 or more on the included items. I bought the Nivea lip this week to finish up my Anniversary UPs. Today was the end of the promotion.

The lip tubes were on sale this week 2/$3. The lip butters are higher priced and weren't included in the sale, but the Qs still applied, just not free.

Had forgotten about those stupid on-card UPs...asked the other day but the kid working had no clue. So of course they applied today while I was draggin DH around with me. So I only bought two rounds of Nivea. Screw RA and having to think about these things. Store manager at Woodbury checked me out and handed back the two MQs because of course they wouldn't go through since only 2.01 was left....

I spent $17 all last year at RA. And this is why. I don't have time to play their fool games and remember if I have rewards on my card. Would have been nice to have the time to grab the rest of the Qs worth of Nivea, but DH was of course annoyed after this episode, as was I. Thinking of just returning the four Nivea. But who knows what will happen to the UPs then....not to mention explaining it to them. Should have just PMed them in groups of 8 at WM the other night....cashier wouldn't have cared at all.Frown

Ang, you have a PITA RA. Frown I have a PITA Target. Crying If you ever want any RA help, let me know. As you are aware, I just don't go to Target (unless I'm in your neighborhood and go to yours hug).

Having said that, you can opt-out of the load-2-card UPs. Every RA cashier *should* know how to do it. I much prefer to have my paper UPs in hand. If your store doesn't know how (it's pretty simple), or if you want me to have my store do it for you, send me a PM or email (I'll just need the phone # associated with the card to have it taken care of). My stores are wonderful.

Normally York is ok. But as I've shopped at any RA about a handful of times in the last year I've not bothered with UPs. I've mostly snagged free after MQs or cheap sale priced items.

I've kind of read about the new UP process and the new WAGs points thing but not really, since I'm not shopping there enough to bother. Plus the kid I asked was definitely high school aged. He may have known but didn't want to bother with the effort.

If I opt out is it permanent? Or do I have to opt out every transaction that produces UPs?

Opt out once and all your UPs will print. I much prefer this way, so I don't forget I have them.

Wags, on the other hand... Confused
